VC JUCO Showcase: Year One

Half banner thisisit

    This past Thursday and Friday saw the first ever Verbal Commits event: the VC JUCO Showcase. Hosted alongside the prestigious Sunflower Showcase in Kansas City, players from all over the country came out to play in front of coaches for an opportunity to earn scholarships.

    From T.J. Washington's off the backboard alley-oop to Preston Ellis to Mickey Locke's hot streak in the All-Showcase game, certain players had coaches buzzing once the games were over. 

    We'd like to thank Mike Enright from RecruitLook for hosting the event and Tommy Canale for coaching the players. Coaches, if you have any questions about any of the participants in our event, please DM us on Twitter or email me at

    We're extremely grateful for the following recruits who played in our showcase:
